Mothers talking the talk

This one's for my Bay Area posse. There will be another MotherTalk salon this upcoming Saturday evening, June 17. This one will feature Judy Stadtman Tucker from The Mothers Movement Online and should be a spirited evening filled with lively discussion, thoughtful women, and fine wine. Leave a comment if you'd like an invitation to this event, which will be held in Berkeley.

Judy Stadtman Tucker was at a MotherTalk in Philadelphia back in March. After the event, Miriam Peskowitz from Playground Revolution wrote about Judy:

"All I can say is that she's the kind of person that when she looks around the room at 11:30 pm, after several hours of conversation, and says expansively, "This is the revolution," well, you feel like indeed, you're part of the new century's take on the early 70's famed CR groups. You see yourself as part of history. She has that effect on you."

Judy's organization--The Mothers Movement Online--"provides resources and reporting for mothers and others who think about social change." From the About page:

"The Mothers Movement Online was founded in April 2003 as an open source for information about social, cultural, economic and political issues that affect the wellbeing of mothers. Our purpose is to serve as a clearinghouse for reporting and resources that support social change. Our intention is to promote economic and social justice for mothers and others who do the caring work of our society."

I've been to a couple of MotherTalk events, and both of them were inspiring and wonderful. This one promises to be equally as stimulating. Let me know if you want to go! And for the rest of my posse, I'll be sure and do a write-up of the event.
